Showing your meeting duration

Last Updated:

To avoid meetings going over the scheduled time, you have an option to include a clock in your meeting or webinar display showing how much time has elapsed since you joined the meeting.

Prerequisites for showing your connected time in a meeting

  • Zoom desktop client
    • Windows: 5.0.0 or higher
    • macOS: 5.0.0 or higher

After this setting is enabled, each time you start or join a meeting or webinar, the clock displays in the meeting window showing how much time has elapsed since you joined the meeting. The clock shows a different value for each meeting participant, depending on when they joined.

Note that the location of the clock is usually in the upper right corner of the meeting display. However, if you share your screen, the clock displays below the share screen controls.
